Developed out of the need for a reliable collection and storage engine for our DDS and RDC web applications, MeasAir’s Data Acquisition and Storage System (DASS) was designed to efficiently collect ambient air quality instrument data directly from device memory (digitally) and store in an SQL database. The application was streamlined specifically for these tasks and was deliberately provisioned not to carry any unnecessary resource overhead or unneeded functionality. The result is an intuitive system that is extremely robust and technologically current.
As a native multi-threaded system, the DASS is capable of acquiring air quality instrument data over large networks and from a broad range of devices, all simultaneously. For added flexibility, the system can be operated in a centralized or distributed configuration to meet even the most challenging applications.
System deployment is remarkably fast. Field or station deployments require only a TCP/IP Internet socket, network router, and the DASS hardware complement which occupies only 2 units (3.5”) of rack space! Centralized or host setup, which supervises the collection of network data and SQL storage tasks, typically takes less than two hours to install and configure.
For networks with existing data acquisition system infrastructure, the MeasAir DASS can be optionally be configured to communicate with other systems, such as DR DAS, and store the data in the DASS SQL database.
Have analog signals you need to collect as well? No problem! DASS can capture these as well and store them in SQL along with the other instrument data.
